Checklist: Which Cloud Platform to Choose

Which cloud platform to choose ?

Choosing the right cloud platform provider can be a daunting task. Take the big three, AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform; each offers a huge number of products and services, but understanding how they enable your specific needs is not easy.

Instance type and zones ?

When choosing a platform you need to consider your target audience. Pay attention to geographic criteria as they may be the most crucial for you. Platforms vary widely by region.

Computing Power ?

Computing is a fundamental process for your entire business. The advantage of cloud computing is that you have a powerful and expandable computing force at your disposal that is ready when you need it.

Analytics Requirements at an extreme level ?

Cloud computing platforms provide quite a lot of useful data about your business. All you need to do to is make the proper analysis.

Network ?

It may come in handy to have your network in the cloud. You can have your VPN in an isolated place for your team only. And, it’s a great feature that adds value to your cloud system.

Storage ?

Storage is an important pillar of cloud computing because it enables us to allocate all sorts of information (needed for our business) in an online location.

Pricing ?

At the end of the day, everyone wants to know: “So, how much is that going to cost me?”

Database requirement?

For many, migrating applications to the cloud will include a database of one form or another. All cloud providers can run database software on virtual server infrastructure, so this is always an option.
